Shoulder Press Exercise
Our shoulders are highly flexible joints that enable us to perform a number of tasks in our day to day lives. They also assist in movement of our arms.
The shoulder press exercise is similar to a military press but performed with dumbbells.
Targets: Middle and Front of Shoulders (Medial and Anterior Deltoids and a little Triceps)
How to perform The Shoulder Press Exercise:
- Standing with feet shoulder-width apart, hold an eight to ten-pound dumbbell in each hand.
- Bend elbows to bring weights in front of shoulders.
- Tightening abs, turn palms forward as you press dumbbells above your head.
Do not strain the shoulder muscles by over-exercising them in order to avoid the risk of injury and muscular damage.
